Well, a Matlab logical is also a double w/ the logical internal flag set so if you really want a point-by-point multiply of conformant arrays, just do it...

d 1x3 24 double array l 1x3 24 double array (logical)

p 1x3 24 double array

I can't follow precisely the question...use of NaN to not display selected points in plot() and friends is a well-respected technique but that seems to be ok if I get your drift.
If you want some other selection criterion as well, use of logical addressing is one way but you don't multiply, you use the logical subscript to select the points desired.
